Grazing and Land Management @ Howling Wolf Farm
Oct 18 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

**Are you a prospective or beginning farmer interested in better understanding how to get started with grazing livestock?
**Are you a land owner or community member seeking ways to support beneficial agricultural choices and water quality in your local community?
**Are you a land owner or manager wondering where to start with rehabilitation of run-down or abandoned land?

This workshop and pasture walk hosted by Jenn Colby will include an overview of the principles of soil health in action, as well as highlighting the actions she has taken to improve her own farm using primarily targeted sheep grazing and other low cost, low input management methods.  Jenn has operated Howling Wolf Farm at three locations in the Randolph area since 2000, and has worked with a variety of livestock and land conditions in that time.  She manages grazing and livestock technical assistance and educational programs statewide as part of UVM Extension’s Center for Sustainable Agriculture.

At the conclusion of the pasture walk, attendees are welcome to continue the conversation over lamb stew and other refreshments.
